FAQ

To book a session with me, just send me an email and I'll send you a link to my calendar where you can see when I'm available. Keep in mind that I book up quickly during the wedding season (May to October), so if you want to book a session, you should reach out to me about 3–4 weeks in advance.

I have a list of popular spots in and around the city here - https://afshinstudios.com, but if you were to ask me what my absolute favourite location is, it's the Arboretum and Central Experimental Farm!

Try to stay away from bold patterns and writing on shirts, and make sure that your clothes fit well. My editing style is bright and a little bit rich, so keep that in mind when picking your clothes.

A few days before a book session, I keep an eye on the weather pretty often. If the weather isn't good on the day of your session, I'll let you know and we'll set up a new date.

Yes, absolutely! I love taking photos of the whole gang. Please get in touch with me to get a price quote for bigger family gatherings.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to a suitable studio at the moment.

If you don't want to sit on the bare ground, a blanket is an excellent thing to bring along. When dealing with children, bribery is usually effective. Finally, if you're bringing a pet and don't want it in every picture, have someone else come along to take care of it.

Within 1 week (possibly less depending on the season), you will get an online gallery link with all of your images. All of the pictures in the gallery are available for download.
